This drawing re-boot workshop will meet initially on Zoom on Wednesday, April 8th at 10 am, where you will receive a demonstration of drawing exercises from Teaching Artist Heather Blume. She will assign drawing exercises to work on over the next few days.
The follow up meeting will be on Friday, April 10 at 10 am, during which time you will have the opportunity to share your drawings, and any thoughts you may have had during the process (ie, has drawing been helpful in lessening anxious thoughts, did it give you more confidence to continue drawing, any problems?) The workshop will end with suggestions for continuing your work and possibilities for more chances to connect.
Materials: 9”x12” sketchbook, any kind of pencil and or any kind of ink pen you enjoy using or have at home.
